Dip Style Wings

This was a very interesting wing event.
I had four recipes 3 of which are all cooked the same way but then you cover the wings in a flavour.
Two of the flouvars were pretty much exactly the same except for the Horseraddish coming through in the one.
The Avocado recipe was to die for, I know it sounds strange mixing wings with this green jewel but trust me it works.

Corny Corn Wings

It was bound to happen someday that I would come across a wing that I didn’t like. This is the one. That being said I still ate all of them.
I found the molasses was too strong and the whole recipe just lacked the full combination of flavours.
The smell was not something that I could not handle.
Extra from my journal when making these reads:
“Smells horrible looks horrible I hope this works”
